Hi everyone,

Through reading several threads about Orbiter development since it is open-source, I wonder if Orbiter 2016 is still the official version. Can we expect a 64 bits version soon ?

Kind regards,

Orbiter 2016 is still the official version. AFAIK, Martin wants to release a patch version with all the beta development rolled into a classic x86 version with inline graphics engine before switching to x64. So if your "soon" is weeks, I'd say no. The mentioned patch version, however, could be available "soon".
